Not Me! Monday

Well, here'll be my first attempt at Not Me! Monday Created by the illustrious MckMama. I've been stalking following her blog for awhile, and she has also taken quite a break due to her baby boy being hospitalized, but have yet to join in in one of these so here goes...

I did not feed my 4 month old Munchkin ice cream to see if she liked it, and upon finding out she did I did not feed her more! Because, you know, that would be against the rules to feed an exclusively breastfed baby ice cream - especially before getting her used to rice cereal!

I did not finish frosting sugar cookies with frosting that I had left out overnight and then continue eating them! Who would do such a gross thing? I mean, can't you get sick from that? I would most certainly not do such an unsanitary thing!

I also would never prop my daughters head up while nursing her so I can type and design on my computer with 2 hands. That would be just unfeeling and unkind, and what about sabotaging that "bonding time" that is exalted. No, not me!

I also would NOT dip my daughters pacifier in soda and maceroni and cheese sauce to keep her calm a little bit longer for me to finish eating my dinner. Her needs should always come before mine and it would be incredibly selfish to placate her for my own comfort. I would never do such a thing.

I also would not have serious anxiety about Munchkin sleeping in her crib away from me, although it is in my bedroom, and have to get up and make sure she's still breathing until she wakes up and I have a reason to bring her back to bed with me. That would be just crazy and neurotic and I am not that kind of mother. Nope, not me.

Well, thanks for reading all the things I have not done this week! Head on over to Mckmama's blog to read her Not me!'s and everyone elses out there in cyber space!

I have never propped up a nursing baby to work on the computer either, how coincidental. I also do not prop books on nursing babies heads, because, you know, bonding and all.

Was your little mistreated Munchkin born around Christmas as mine was??? Great job for your first "Not Me!" Makes Monday a little better doesn't it?
